Among the 13th century manuscripts dedicated to the “ars notariae”, Salatiel is one of its outstanding compilers. The “Ars Notariae” was, among other manuals such as those of Rainier of Perugia, Bencivenni of Norcia and Giovanni, the most consulted by practicing notaries. Subsequently, it was replaced little by little, given its enormous complexity, by others such as that of Rolandino Passagieri. Salatiel’s work is made up of four books; The first three deal with notarial theory and the fourth, practical, includes a series of documents on different legal practices.

Other notarial documents from various Catalan towns such as Camprodón, Figueres, Manresa, Vic, Barcelona and Gerona were added to the manuscript from the Library of Catalonia.

The text of manuscript 284 of the Library of Catalonia has a somewhat heterogeneous character, although it does not cease to belong to the legal genre, characterized precisely by its precision and homogeneity. On the one hand, and in pride of place, there is the elaborate notary manual by Salatiel of Bologna, and on the other, in addition to the detailed diagrams and forms for writing letters, a documentary collection of special interest. Each of these parts has posed a specific problem and has required an analysis and translation technique appropriate to its idiosyncrasy.

“Praiseworthy as necessary for men is the notarial office”, with these words Salatiel Bonaniense begins his manuscript “Ars Notariae”, where he masterfully exposes all the laws and rules to exercise this illustrious office in the 14th century. This manuscript is the historical basis on which the good work of Notaries is founded.

The “Ars Notariae” by Salatiel, from the Library of Catalonia, is organized into a proem and four books. The first three carry out an exhaustive review of some aspects of Civil Law, based mainly on the Digest.
The proem explains the content of the work and focuses mainly on telling what the office of Notary or Tabelion consists of.
The first book exposes in a very complete way the divisions of people, things, actions and obligations.
The second book explains what contracts and agreements consist of and their different types.
The third book talks about testaments and last wills.
The fourth book begins with reference to the taxes, below are a series of treatment formulas, examples of notarial instruments and diagrams of how they should be carried out. Then the notarial clauses begin to continue until the end with more examples of notarial instruments.
